time for a break

So I am on winter vacation til Monday morning of January 4, 2010. Now I will still be doing my part time gigs - trivia and bartending, but my main gig - teaching - has given me 2 weeks off. There is so much to be done at my house - I really do have to straighten and organize my bedroom. I tend to come home and throw things down and my husband hates it. So it is super important that I get it done. Also I have to remove the rest of the carpet from my bedroom so when we have the money to put our new flooring down, we can act super fast on it. I am so tired of walking on plywood in my house.

Working out at the gym will also be a priority! I will be there everyday (except christmas and new year's when they are closed). Those days I might do the 30 day shred at home.

I will also be trying to spend as much time with my husband as possible. We have both worked so much lately that we don't get to see each other that much. That tends to happen when one person works days and the other works nights.

I plan on also going to the library to pick out a book and will read at least one whole book this winter break. I love to read and for the past 5 months I have not had any time to sit and read at all. So I am committing myself to read at least one book in the next two weeks.

Holiday gifts have been taken care of for everyone except for one person and I just need to take the time to go and get that gift. The gifts are wrapped and under the tree ready to be given out.
Let the Holidays begin!

I so miss the time off at Xmas break. I really hope I get a teaching job this Fall. I miss it:(

As far as books, I really enjoy Phillipa Gregory's books, the Twilight series (gag now, I know), Dating Rituals of a North American Wasp, and Emily Giffin books along with other stuff like Dan Brown and what not.

Girl, if you ever decide to move out to BFE where you can see deer on a regular basis and four wheelers parked out front of the sidewalk, then we can work out together. LOL;)
